That is actually great, as the older ones focused on DX8 and 9 and give a very good impression how well (or often how bad!) your shiny new DX11 cards will perform with older titles.
Ok but... bad news: multi-thread/-core CPU can't use more than 2 threads/cores on graphics tests - it's abnormal, if the videocard is too fast (eg: GF 8800 GTX, GF GTX 280...). Because the Futuremark is bad.
Most games of 2006-7 don't use more than 2 threads ... even Crysis 1 uses 2 thread only
I remember downloading 3DMark03 for the first time and was blown away by the Pixel Shader 2.0 demo. Made my poor FX5600 weep but was amazing for its time!
What no 3dmark86?
